Slutwalk is coming to Tucson!

Slutwalk Tucson will take place in Downtown Tucson Friday, May 13, 2011 at 5pm.

The ‘Slutwalk’ movement originated as a street parade in Toronto, Ontario, after a police officer involved in a sexual assault case stated the victim `would not have been raped had she not been dressed like a slut.’

Tucson Sluts will begin their march at 5:00p.m. in front of the Tucson Police Department located at 270 S. Stone Avenue, Tucson, AZ. Sluts in attendance will then march to the Main Library at 101 N. Stone Avenue in Downtown Tucson via the Superior Court house at Congress and Church Streets. People are encouraged to participate in the parade, or meet us at the Main Library at 5:30 to greet the marchers and listen to local activists speak. Participants in the parade may dress as “slutty” as they are comfortable doing and are encouraged to bring signs to march with.

What next?  A follow-up meeting is planned for Monday, May 16th, 2011 at the Main Library from 6-8pm. Discussion will continue.
